Chemistry and Pharmacology
The synthesis, isolation, spectroscopic characterization, and computational investigations of the rod-shaped dicyanopolyynes 1-6 (C2nN2, n = 4-9), which are model substances for the hypothetical one-dimensional carbon allotrope carbyne sp-C∞, are described. Based on the trends in the spectroscopic behavior of 1-6 with increasing chain length, the electronic as well as the NMR properties of carbyne are predicted. For the investigation of the synthetic potential of this compound class, a first selected series of regioselective derivatizations is presented with the synthesis of the [4+2] and [3+2] cycloadducts 7-12.
